2012 Honda Civic Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2012 Honda Civic based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The airbag warning light (SRS) may illuminate due to a defective occupant position sensor. Honda has a recall campaign to replace defective sensors on affected cars.
On Certain models a faulty power window switch can cause the power windows to work or not work intermittently.
The shift control solenoid externally mounted on the automatic transmission (non CVT) can fail and causes a harsh 1-2 shift. Replacing the shift solenoid and flushing the transmission with genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid may eliminate harsh shifting characteristics. A broken internal spring can cause the same issue. If the shift control solenoid does not repair the problem, the transmission will have to be replaced.
Damaged engine mounts can lead to vibration and roughness felt in the steering wheel. A rattle in the dash and engine area may also be heard. Replacement of damaged mounts will commonly correct these issues.
Front compliance bushings may crack and break. Damaged bushing should be replaced before damaged is done to suspension components.
